Stubby is in the house. I believe his real name was Dr. Stubblethorn or something similar. Old english stock with a highly expressed eccentricity gene. His main preoccupation was heart sounds and there was nothing more interesting in his world than a rheumatic heart. It was a shame, in his view, that there were only four valves to muck up. It was said that his stethescope had three heads, and if you were to cut off one of them, two more would grow in it's place. Generations of med students were entertained by his imitation of heart sounds. In fine form, he could simulate more snaps, pops and clicks than a flock of starlings in a feeding frenzy. And he was now on the cardiology consultation service.
